Ministry Spotlight

Because You Matter Prayer Shawl Ministry

The Prayer Shawl Ministry at First UMC is really at the heart of who we are as a church.  The making of a prayer shawl is a spiritual practice which embodies our  thoughts and prayers for the receiver. It is a gift  given freely with no  strings attached. Made in prayer, the shawls are passed on hand-to-hand  and heart-to-heart.  With this simple gift the woman of our Prayer Shawl Ministry give comfort to those in need.  Anyone facing a serious challenge – loneliness,  illness (physical or emotional), financial issues, fertility, etc.   Shawl recipients share that they feel comfort knowing that people are  praying for them in their time of need. 

A Special Thanks to the Women of the First UMC Prayer Shawl Team. 

You are truly doing God's work comforting those in need.
